Words have shaped me like a sculpture,
Like liquid poured into a mold,
Words have feasted on my soul crueler than a vulture,
Tearing me apart, splitting me open, leaving me exposed,
Words more painful than a pus-filled ulcer,
Left me trembling, huddled in a...Read More

An Ode to Edgar Allan Poe
Sir, Edgar Allan Poe.
A gifted author, that you may know.
He has written several classics such as, the Tale Tale Heart.
The man's literature is a work of art.
An old man with a vulture eye, smothered by the narrator, he did die.
But...Read More

Slug Aviator
Crimson baron,
the scarlet fumes from your tale pipe
paints the sky 
with steel blue dye

Duke of the corporeal death plane,
your splatter reign
brings a barrel of spitfire pain

As you hide in the cadaver clouds,
waiting to vulture dive 
like a mercenary bird of...Read More

Blue Light Bulbs and a Bottle of Bleach and The Incandescent Must Win -part 2
“Deep, deep, deep. Listen and hear our faint gait.
Sanitation, fluorescent lights, and a PC pillow for smother.
Agree! Agree! Atone! Suck it in and suff-o-cate.
White-ness. Black. Ev’ry creed, faith, and color. Listen to Nanny State and call her your mother.”

Gawker - Repost
I originally posted this personal fave on 2-10-17.

Something tragic just happened up ahead,
somebody got hurt real bad ...
someone might even be dead
So you slow your car down,
just to take a peek
Peer out your window
for a quick look-see
Why is it that...Read More

In the past conversation,
Before the advent of man,
Between the God and the Angels,
Man of the different color
And the same color,
Will butcher themselves.

When tempered beyond natural state,
The finest blade lose it edge.

The vulture
Foxed the peacock's feather
To it form.

The Train Driver
Of course,I read the manual.
Who hasn't?
Words,nothing but words
Until it happens
And then it is burned,branded and imprinted 
Graphically and indelibly
Into your brain.

Sleep brings the nightmare alive
Again and again
You witness it over and over
In all its starkness
There's no escape,no way out

You can't...Read More

Candy corn! Candy corn!
I want nothing else in my Halloween bag
but mounds of candy corn!
I could Trick or Treat all night

but nothing screams Halloween to me
like a sack full of candy corn.

Once I was walking down the street
When a gypsy stepped out to say,
"Read your future for a dollar?"
Back then, for me, an hours pay!

Old and wrinkled was this woman
With a ragged and worn floral dress
With hands bent quite like vulture...Read More

American Dreams

It’s a time to be fresh, 
to be plucked wriggling 
out of a shining
land or sea,
a fresh humanity, 
still moon-ray buckled
and gold,
no evidence 
of city, and crap-house crud.

America, you can do this.
I am a being from the old,
I am from...Read More

 As the nocturnal owls spoke cabalistic monologues,

The Little You can Know
Without form and void, 
The world gave a lunatic gaze. 
Lack of luminous light love bought,
Darkness did give her a chase. 
Open to no one was her, 
Water beneath and air above. 
Open to someone was the stars, 
Lodging in...Read More

Premium Member A Fluttering In My Attic
There’s a fluttering in my attic;
something’s alive up there.
The cat is getting frantic
and I dread going up the stairs.

I hope that it’s a bird,
rather than a bat;
unless I have misheard,
oh, I’d better get a hat.

I recall my sister’s hair,

An Everlasting Photo
An old picture appears 
on the screen. Students 
stare at the raw reality.
The professor praises
the photographer’s 
precision and perfection.	
But Kevin is criticized 
at the end as usual.

Kevin creates eternity, 
startles the humanity.
But he forgets to save

Sculpture of Trump

While watching Trump we saw a sculpture,
Of someone who appeared to be a vulture;
Source of power,
A golden shower;
Not only that had started his own culture.

Trump Caused Rupture In Sculpture
Trump Caused Rupture In Sculpture

Trump caused another significant rupture,
That did create damage to social structure;
Face seeemed mean,
Right at the scene;
Swooped down and ate it up like a vulture.

Eons ago in the planet’s evolution,
During tectonic plate movement:
The Indian Island Ma moved northward,
Crashing into the Eurasian continent,
To form the Himalayan mountains.

Out of the chaos, towering peaks arose,
Piercing heavenly soft, white cotton clouds,
Bursting into clear blue skies as Earth revolved,
And...Read More
